A theoretical model based on the laser rate equations is used to describe injection locking in pulsed dye lasers. It is shown that, in general, the frequency of the injection locked pulse is not equal to the frequency of the cw light-an unexpected result since the two are related through stimulated emission. We discuss how to accommodate this feature in the design of a specialized delay line used to create optical pulse sequences with variable phase shifts between the pulses. © 1986 SPIE.
